have the kind of grand bargain that president obama is talking about with the rublicans where you cut social security an medice and in exchange the republicans agree to raise taxes and you have ten more years of austerity. i think in the next year or two until the economy gets back on its feet, you need public spending to get people back to work, rebuild the infrastructure and make it more competitive and when you get back to something close to full employment, people have jobs and are paying taxes, then you can reduce the debt because you have a higher growth rate and the debt ratio comes down on its own accord. that's the time to rebalance. >> woodruff: would th be youremy? >> i think the headline for listeners is not what i want but what has happened. if you look at the cbo's unless of what president obama and the republicans have agreed to and they stabilized the debt at a reasonable level about the average of the last 20 years relatively quickly. my guess is given that there's a lot of posturing in washington but they are not going to do much more either way. there won't be more

parenthood thing, shocking i'm going to defend president obama when he was talking to planned parenthood of women having the right to choose he was not talking about children who are under the age of 15. that is two totally separate subjects we discussed this when i was here a few weeks ago how vehemently i'm against children getting this drug. >> at what age does a girl become a child or a woman, is there a marker there? >> that is a grey area. but sheer what i will say we look at other thing that you have to have parental spoken are where you have to be over the age of 18 to get. we're looking at liquor, sick gets, i still have to show i.d. if i want to get deacon guessing. when you look at those things you say, girls under the age of 15, children should be ae to have access to that. that is where i'm putting the boundaries at. >> what is troubles the politicizing of this issue, absolutely there is pot particulars at play. republicans talk about overreach of government in this situation you can call it overreach and democrats are revolting against the president putting -- at the same t

woodward. >> -- written a book about these negotiations and did a lot of talking to the republicans. and ended up saying boehner and obama reached a deal and obama walked away from it. well, eric cantor, in his interview with ryan lizza of "the new yorker" a couple of months ago basically corrected him. he said, well, i talked to boehner and said it really wouldn't be a good idea to reach a deal now because then the issue evaporates. the presidengets the credit, and he has a better chance of being re-elected. better to keep it alive and fight it out in the -- in the election. >> and it didn't pay off for them, did -- >> it didn't pay off at all. >> except they held the house but it didn't pay off for them in the senate. he lost two seats in the senate. didn't pay off for him in winning the presidency? >> it was a -- call it a riverboat gamble, i suppose you could say. because what cantor said in that interview was -- if we win it all, then we don't have to compromise. they didn't. but the reaction wasn't, all right, now we have to compromise. instead it s, we're still not going to c

to take the reins there is janet yellin, the vice chair. she is who gets most often talked about as a leading candidate. some others are less widely talked about, roger ferguson, larry summers has the resume for it but is a polarizing figure. i think president obama will have plenty of options as he starts to weigh this decision in the months ahead. >> it does sound like janet yellin is the front-runner from the people we've been hearing from. tell me, do you think when it does come time for the federal reserve to pull the stimulus out of the economy, and let's say she is the fed chief, what kind of job do you think she'll do? because it's a very tricky -- it's a very tricky exit strategy to have to executes here. >> yeah, you know, the politics, the technical stuff is one side. you raise interest rates? can you sell off this bond portfolio they've accumulated? $3 trillion a huge task. but have i more confidence in their ability to handle the technical aspects than i do making the right decision. when do you begin this exit? when does the time that inflation is a risk, financial

move was president obama endorsing president bush's leadership on immigration and saying that this was his legacy, and let's vindicate his vision. grassley, ahuck ranking member of the senate judiciary said, after the boston bombings, all this talk about immigration reform, it is time to look at immigration laws and policies already in place to make sure we are addressing national security issues. >> the bombings have implications on terror policy, implications on the miranda rule and all of that. it does not have any implications in reality of immigration. i know is being used left and right but you will have immigrants, going back to the early 19th century, 20th- unexpected is not and it is the price of immigration, of which the good that we get from immigrants far weighs theseut feelings of this affection or violence. >> amazingly, we sit here week after week talking about how washington is dysfunctional. this is the first time i thought they would do something. the stars are in alignment. really, the republicans cannot afford to bid anti-immigration. >> i am not sure

for the obama administration but republicans are in worst shape than they were back in january and i think that was reflected today. the president probably scored some political points when he talked about sequester and the lack o of any effort on the part of the other side to do any kind of grand bargain, he was muddled on syria as the policy is for, i think, rather understandable reasons, but it really was not what i would term any kind of a conclusive event, but that reflects the times. >> rose: chuck? >> yeah, i thought there was a lot of blame congress in there, when you take away the syria aspect, every issue that came across, he had a dig in there for congress, whether it was the sequester and the faa pick, even on implementing healthcare talking how congress is trying to stop him on healthcare, on guantanamo, an issue he hasn't been asked about a lot but with that hunger strike taking place down there is a lot of concern among a lot of people that something that one of these detainees could die and that could become a game change never that respect and again, he remined people cong
